White Supremacists Plan Anti-Immigration Rallies Nationwide in February 2013

White suprema­cists from around the United States are plan­ning to hold “Free Amer­ica” ral­lies oppos­ing “ille­gal immigration” on Feb­ru­ary 23, 2013.

A post on the white suprema­cist Inter­net forum Storm­front men­tions sched­uled ral­lies in cen­tral Cal­i­for­nia, Ore­gon, Mass­a­chu­setts, Ten­nessee, Washington/Idaho, West Vir­ginia, New York and Penn­syl­va­nia. Accord­ing to the post, Harry Bertram, who ran for gov­er­nor of West Vir­ginia under the white suprema­cist Amer­i­can Third Posi­tion (A3P) ticket in 2012, is orga­niz­ing the West Vir­ginia rally.

The main web­site pro­vid­ing infor­ma­tion about the Feb­ru­ary 2013 “Free Amer­ica” ral­lies appears to be run by California-based white suprema­cist Michael Myers. He has a long his­tory of involve­ment in white suprema­cist orga­ni­za­tions includ­ing the Golden State Skin­heads, a racist skin­head group very active in the white power music scene in Cal­i­for­nia. Myers is also affil­i­ated with A3P.

In addi­tion, Myers was the lead orga­nizer for the South African Project (SAP), a coordinated—and largely unsuccessful–effort by white suprema­cists, in Feb­ru­ary 2012, to bring atten­tion to the alleged “geno­cide” of white South African farm­ers. He led the SAP protest in Sacra­mento, California.

An ear­lier web­site set up for the anti-immigrant ral­lies listed a dif­fer­ent date and con­tact per­sons. One con­tact listed on the pre­vi­ous web­site was “Milissa Schidecker,” who was des­ig­nated as the point per­son for the Louisiana protests. It appears that “Milissa Schidecker” is in fact Milissa Gulett, the wife of Mor­ris Gulett, a well-known white supremacist.

The Guletts recently returned to Louisiana where Mor­ris set up the new head­quar­ters for his fac­tion of the neo-Nazi orga­ni­za­tion Aryan Nations. Though Milissa Gullet’s (or Schidecker’s) name does not appear on the new web­site, her Face­book page reveals that she “liked” the event page set up for the Feb­ru­ary 23 “Free Amer­ica” ral­lies. It is unclear at this time whether the Guletts are plan­ning to have a rally on Feb­ru­ary 23 in Louisiana.

For many years, white suprema­cists have attempted to use the issue of immi­gra­tion as a way to tap into the Amer­i­can main­stream. Their efforts in this area have not been successful.

White Supremacist Student Leader Creates Web site for his “White Student Union”

Update 8/2/13: A new White Stu­dent Union has formed at Geor­gia State Uni­ver­sity by fresh­man Patrick Sharp.

Matthew Heim­bach, a Tow­son Uni­ver­sity stu­dent who is try­ing to start a “White Stu­dent Union” on cam­pus, cre­ated a web­site for the union that fur­ther reveals his white suprema­cist beliefs.

On the newly cre­ated site, Heim­bach pro­vides links to what he describes are “pro-white” web­sites.   Almost all of the sites listed, how­ever, are actu­ally openly white suprema­cist, such as those for the Council of Con­ser­v­a­tive Cit­i­zens (CCC), the Amer­i­can Third Posi­tion and Amer­i­can Renais­sance.

The CCC is a direct descen­dant of the white suprema­cist White Cit­i­zens Coun­cils that fought inte­gra­tion in the 1950s and 60s. Amer­i­can Third Posi­tion is a whites-only polit­i­cal party whose mis­sion is “to rep­re­sent the inter­ests of White Amer­i­cans.” Amer­i­can Renais­sance is the racist web­site run by white suprema­cist Jared Tay­lor, who pub­lishes a monthly jour­nal by the same title and hosts an annual con­fer­ence that brings together some of the lead­ing white suprema­cists in the United States.

Heim­bach recently announced that Tay­lor will speak at Tow­son on Octo­ber 2, 2012.

Heim­bach also lists “rec­om­mended read­ings” that include books authored by a vari­ety of well-known white suprema­cists and racists, such as Fran­cis Parker Yockey’s “Imperium,” con­sid­ered one of the essen­tial works of mod­ern white supremacy. One book rec­om­mended by Heim­bach is the novel “Camp of the Saints” by French­man Jean Ras­pail. This racist novel por­trays a France being invaded by non-whites who are depicted as disease-carrying and sex­u­ally aggres­sive. The list also fea­tures two books authored by the late white suprema­cist Sam Fran­cis: “Essen­tial Writ­ings on Race” and “Race and the Amer­i­can Prospect.” In the lat­ter book, Fran­cis bemoans the “absence of racial con­scious­ness among whites.”

Prior to cre­at­ing the Web site, the Tow­son stu­dent news­pa­per, The Tow­erlight, pub­lished a let­ter by Heim­bach advo­cat­ing for a white stu­dent union.   Fly­ers were also placed all over the Tow­son cam­pus that pro­claimed: “love your race, sup­port a white stu­dent union.”

Heim­bach is a for­mer leader of the Youth for West­ern Civ­i­liza­tion chap­ter at Tow­son, a group with racist ties whose motto is “defend­ing the West on campus.”

Heim­bach still needs the approval of the Uni­ver­sity to make the White Stu­dent Union an officially-sanctioned uni­ver­sity group.  His Web site sug­gests that he will set­tle for an unsanc­tioned group if need be.  Either way, he has made clear his inten­tion to impose his white suprema­cist views on Tow­son stu­dents, staff, and faculty.
